Join our resident Maxon colorist and ICA instructor Maximus Raharjo, as he hosts a fortnightly grading show, showcasing looks, techniques, tips, settings, LUTs and workflows, designed to help you learn more about color correction and grading. Max will feature industry guests who will also share how they approach the grading process, providing invaluable production information, helping you to become a better colorist.

Continuing the discussion on the film aesthetics, in this session Max will showcase how to borrow those aesthetics to be included into your looks. This time, not only will he revisit the creation of looks inside DaVinci Resolve but also showcasing the looks development process in NLE software such as Premiere Pro using Magic Bullet Suite. So, if you are not a full-time colorist, don’t worry about it. This session will get you covered.
